Wrap it up!
New from Helga's, these mixed grain wraps have half the sodium of other common brands (you’ll get 255mg per wrap). They’re made from wheat, rye and triticale, meaning they are also high in fibre with 3.7g per wrap. These are great for summer lunches, just add your favourite filling – and you can even use as a pizza base. RRP $4.99 from Woolworths.
Quaker Nut Bars contain wholegrain oats and are great for a snack in a hurry. These have 25 per cent less sugar than your average nut bar, and only 550–560kJ per bar. They also carry the Heart Foundation Tick. Pack of 6 bars RRP $4.00 from Woolworths.
Nuts for nuts
New Carman’s nut bars come in three delish flavours, and are gluten-free and high in fibre to keep you going. They make a substantial snack with up to 810kJ per bar, however most of the kilojoules come from the ‘heart-friendly’ fats in the nuts. Pack of five bars priced from $5.00, available at Woolworths and Coles.
AntiOx Snack Bars have a new flavour – Chia & Quinoa. They’re made with a mix of fruit and wholegrains and are covered in sugar-free dark chocolate. They are also high in fibre and low in sodium but have 668kJ and a moderately high 3.7g saturated fat – so it’s not one to knock back every day. Keep them for a delicious occasional treat. Priced from $2.00 at Woolworths and Coles.
